The Wastewater Treatment Project includes construction of the Trent Forcemain, a 1.3km extension of an existing pipe from the intersection of Chandler Ave and St Charles Street to the Clover Point Pump Station.
The eastern branch of the Capital Regional District’s core area conveyance system collects wastewater from Saanich, Oak Bay, and Victoria directing it to the Clover Point Pump Station. The Trent Forcemain construction will increase the capacity of this system and will help reduce wet weather overflows.
The Trent Forcemain is the final component of the Wastewater Treatment Project to be procured. Construction is anticipated to begin in early 2020 and take approximately one year to complete.
A key consideration during the construction will be managing potential impacts on the surrounding community. All construction activity will comply with City of Victoria bylaws regarding hours of work and noise levels.
